I traveled to St. Louis last weekend with a friend to see the Broadway tour of Spring Awakening at the Fox Theatre. Although we were rather disappointed with St. Louis in general, the Fox was amazing. We couldn't believe our eyes when we walked into that grand lobby. What an architectural marvel. Never seen anything like it in any city. The program called it Siamese Byzantine, which is a good description.
The auditorium was massive and just as lavish. St. Louis is so fortunate to have this theatre restored and operating. Here in Oklahoma City, our historic theatres were all torn down during an ill-advised 1970s urban renewal project. I will definitely come back to see another show at the Fox.
